Submit your district selection of ACT or SAT between Aug. 17 and Sept. 15

Schools will administer state-sponsored college and career readiness tests in spring 2021. Juniors will take whichever college and career readiness test their districts choose. The Department has updated its webpages for the state-funded ACT and SAT tests.
 
On Aug. 17, each district superintendent/highest level administrator will receive a survey link it can use to indicate its choice of the ACT or SAT for the class of 2022. Each district superintendent/highest level administrator must confirm that it will give the same test it gave in spring 2020,  or it must choose another test for 2021.
 
Because the home districts of students attending joint vocational school districts and educational service centers will select the ACT or SAT test, JVSD and ESC superintendents will not receive ACT/SAT selection surveys. However, these superintendents can work with local districts, community schools and chartered nonpublic schools to arrange to administer the state-funded college and career readiness tests to students attending their schools. Additional details on collaboration are available here.
 
Again, the survey will be open until Sept. 15. For more information to make this important choice, such as test dates, see recorded presentations from SAT and ACT or visit the SAT and ACT websites for printed overviews.
 
The SAT vendor will contact participating districts starting in early October. The ACT vendor will contact participating districts starting in early November. Districts that will administer the tests online must become vendor-approved testing sites according to steps outlined on each vendor’s website for Ohio.
 
Please direct questions about the survey to Michael Reiser.​
 

State Funded SAT or ACT

State law requires districts and community schools to administer the state-funded ACT or SAT to all grade 11 students in the spring of the school year. Each year, districts and schools will select the test to administer to their juniors. | Notice to JVSD & ESC superintendents

All LEAs should make sure they have a current email address in OEDS (OEDS.ContactUs@education.ohio.gov) and with the Ohio-K12 Help Desk (Support@ohio-k12.help).

As part of their state testing programs, the College Board has provided the test dates for the 2021 administration of the state-funded tests*.  Districts and schools will receive further instructions regarding the district test selection process for the spring 2021 state-sponsored testing this summer.
